Professional Celebration of Life Videos


We understand grief and loss, and we appreciate love stories. Our website is ready for your order without any complicated back-and-forth. You pay one fee, upload your completed details form (with your photos and desired text), and we carefully make your video. That’s it.

Memorial videos have become an increasingly important feature in services of remembrance, funerals, celebrations of life, etc. They are also something to share with extended friends and family, to remember and celebrate the life of your beloved now and for years to come.

Also! You can make one of our videos for someone who is still living! Celebrate the life of someone for their 50th birthday, a happy marriage, a retirement, etc. These are suitable for sacred transition times as well.

Celebration of Life Videos – all current options

As you watch, imagine your own music selections, photos and words in these…

Parlor Portraits Demo

“Parlor Portraits”

Parlor Portraits is elegant, vintage, runs 2 minutes 0 seconds, has place for 16 photos, a space for opening text on the wall, a closing customizable text animation, and you choose the best background audio from the full library at, whatever fits your beloved’s style.

Movie Memories Demo

“Movie Memories”

Movie Memories is broadly-appealing and would work well for most people. It runs 1 minute 20 seconds, has frames for 12 photos, and every photo has space for its own brief text caption. You choose the best audio from the full library at, whatever fits your beloved’s style.

Piano Pause Demo

“Piano Pause”

Piano Pause is celestial, with soft lighting and framing for 29 photos in a peaceful scene. It runs 2 minutes 11 seconds, and has customizable intro and outro text. This is a good choice is you want to show many photos without text. The current demo video shows a pet but the video is for a person or a pet. You choose the best background audio from the full library at, whatever fits your beloved’s style.

Family Scrapbook Demo

“Family Scrapbook”

Family Scrapbook runs 1 minute 30 seconds, has framing for 24 photos and a brief text caption for every photo. This is a beautiful animation of a person turning the pages of your real scrapbook. Please note limitations: the hands are as shown (female-appearing, young-appearing, and light-complexion) and this cannot be changed. Also, you cannot edit the ornamental decorations in the scrapbook. What you can edit is the photos, text, and music, which you choose from the full library at

Beach Day Demo

“Beach Day”

Beach Day is our personal favorite, as the beach is sacred ground to us. Note that the demo video depicts a middle-aged celebration of life for someone still living, but as with all of our video options this too would work well for many uses and points in time. The video runs 2 minutes 22 seconds. There is space for 20 photos, and 20 subtitles. You also have space for brief intro and outro text, and you choose the music from the full library available at, based on whatever fits your beloved’s style.

Studio Life Screenshot

“Studio Life” new

Studio Life is for the creative person, because the whole video is set inside an artist’s studio. This would also work as either a memorial video or a milestone celebration video. You set the mood with your choice of music from the full library available at The video runs 2 minutes 7 seconds. There is space for 27 photos, and no customized text except for the closing text at the end.
